We Did It, Michigan – Full Senate Passage! Now on to the House!
Last Updated: December 9, 2016
We are pleased to share the good news that SB 818 was passed by the Michigan Senate by a 35-0 vote! This important legislation, strongly supported by Yoga Alliance®, will enable yoga teacher training programs (YTTs) in Michigan to operate without unnecessary regulation. We commend our legislators, especially bill sponsor Sen. Tonya Schuitmaker, for their efforts to strengthen our yoga community.
Even as we celebrate legislation passed in the Michigan Senate, we need to gear up for further consideration of the bill by the Michigan House of Representatives. We will look to you for continuing support as our bill advances through the legislature, and we will keep you updated on next steps.
Express Your Gratitude
